Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I've just come back after a 4-day stay here. It has some great positives and some things to consider if you're going to stay here.

Positives: perfect location, free WiFi, large rooms, rooftop jacuzzi and powerful shower.

Things to consider: can be very loud (we stayed in room 106 which faced the front and it was very loud and probably only got quiet for around 3 hours between 2-5am) and the beds were extremely hard (ok for 1 or 2 nights but after 4 my whole body was aching).

We didn't opt for breakfast but found it wasn't needed; there is a perfect little cafe about 5 doors down (365) which was extremely cheap (breakfast for two was under €10).

This hotel was chosen by our travel agents for being convenient to most things in Barcelona - and it is !!! On checking in (early morning flight from Manchester meant we got to the hotel for about 11am), the lovely man on reception told us that if our room wasn't ready then we could leave our luggage and go off exploring. I think check-in is 2pm. Anyway, our room was ready, and we checked in. Lovely clean room, coffee machine, safe, toiletries, air conditioning and extra blankets, should we need them. Breakfast was buffet style, eggs, bacon, toast, cereal, fresh juice, fresh fruit, pastries and a fine selection of cheeses and meats, and of corse, teas and coffees. Plenty of everything !!! Hotel is situated just a 5 minute walk from Las Ramblas and Placa Catalunya, where you can get the airport bus and main stop for the Hop On, Hop Off bus tours. Absolutely loved my stay there, Gracias

This hotel is a typical city centre hotel in Spain. Don't expect plush. You get a bed (which was slightly hard but comfortable), coffee machine, bath and shower and WiFi. Plenty of room in the room for 2 people. There is a sun terrace on the roof with Hot tub, which looked as described, but we did not have time to sample it. The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient. Breakfast was decent, and help yourself so as much as you wanted. Location is great. You ca do most of Barcelona from here, or use it to get to the port to catch up with as cruise. The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the Aeroport Bus stop in Placa De Cataluyna, and then about 25 minutes to the cruise terminal.

Hotel is in a great location. Rooms are basic but clean. Bed is comfortable.
First night I could not sleep as the room was very hot and stuffy. There is a large window that opens to a central courtyard. However the courtyard is completely surrounded by the walls of the hotel so no air circulates into the rooms. Also to have the window open the drapes must be open all the way which lets in the light, adding to sleep difficulties. (See photo taken at 3am no flash used)
I asked at reception the following morning about the air conditioning and was told that because it was spring the air conditioning was not switched on.
The staff member looked quite confused when I explained that the room was uncomfortably hot, saying that the night temperature is only about 15 degrees C how could it be hot? He said he would investigate.
It's now night two of our 3 night stay and I'm lying in bed writing this review at 4am - have been awake in this hot and stuffy room for two hours.
It spoils your holiday when you can't sleep well and my memories of Barcelona will be less pleasant due to this.

Excellent location. Small but clean hotel. It's very close to La Ramblas Street and Placa Catalunya where you can get the Airport Bus to BCN Airport. There are plenty of restaurants and other activities everywhere around it. Mr Ferran was very good and helpful in every way. Other staff were helpful as well. The breakfast was excellent and though I paid $10 for it the first time, the next time they included it in my room rate. A good place to stay if you want to be in the heart of Barcelona for a couple of days or for a quick stopover with easy access to the airport.

This hotel has a special location about 7 minutes from Pl. Catalunya and 3 minutes from Las Rambla. The guy that was in the morning in the reception was really friendly and helpful. The room was not very clean, there was dust on the floor and on the bed and there were aberrations in the construction of the bathroom. However the room was big enough and comfortable for 2 people. The breakfast had all the necessary like eggs, bacon, croissants. The hotel is good for its price plus its location !!

The location of the hotel was very nice. Its near to everything by walk. The hotel is located near Universitat Plaza and you can basically walk to Plaza de Catalūna and Plaza de Gracia. Its a 5min walk to the metro or bus stop and 10min walk from the airport shuttle stop.
Bars and everything else it's located on the same street or 5min walk from there.

This hotel offers basic accommodations and amenities at a very good price. There is a sun deck at the roof with a hot tub. The location is excellent withing walking distance of main attractions.
Our room was clean and it had all the basics we needed for a quick stay prior to our cruise.
We arrived early and were able to store our luggage until our room was ready. Front desk was pretty friendly and efficient.Breakfast buffet was simple but sufficient with cereals, breads, sweet rolls and cold cuts.

My friend and I stayed at Ciutat villa last week for 4 nights. We could not fault the hotel at all. From the moment we arrived the staff were attentive and extremely helpful, especially Carlos who helped us plan our stay. Our room was basic, however, very clean ( it was cleaned every day for us) the beds were comfortable and we slept well. We had the top floor with great views. Also you can’t forget the rooftop jacuzzi! Perfect after long days sightseeing! We would stay again. Thank you.

The best way would be to get a Taxi. Plaza Catalunya is about 3 blocks from the Hotel, and with luggage it would be a bit hectic.
